of the united states, so we're going to move on to curtis on our line for republicans, calling from virginia this morning. go ahead, curtis. caller: yeah, i believe in one-party control in congress if it's a republican. if it's not, i don't want to see the democrats in control. i think they got way too extreme and the reason they don't compromise as much -- i feel it's all the democrats' fault. host: let me refer you to a tweet that we have from gary. gary says divided government is best. however, not dysfunctional government. we need people who do government can do things and allow it to do those things. what do you think? caller: honestly, i think divided government is it good, and i do like the fact that there's -- for example, you've got obama, he wants to put forth a socialist agenda. i don't want a socialist agenda. they keep saying we're obstructing. you're darn right we're obstructing. we don't 79 a socialist agenda in united states. that's been tried in europe, and look how bad off they are. it's just a disaster. i don't mind when they call us obstructionists, and i'm proud we're ob

for the call. abby is on the phone from leesburg, virginia on our republican line. caller: i was just calling to say i agree with the last caller that we do have quite a bit of standstill because people are mostly focused on the politics of just polarizing the different parties than actually agreeing to compromise. however, i do appreciate some of the social issues, specifically abortion, that they don't compromise as much. not every issue needs to be such a hard-line. host: thank you. twitter --ion if you are listening on c-span radio, we are talking about congress, expected to wrap up business today, recessing for the november elections and then back for a busy lame-duck session. mike has this story -- is more from the democratic leader nancy pelosi of california.

to the gentleman from virginia, the ranking member of the judiciary committee, mr. scott. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from virginia is recognized for three minutes. mr. scott: thank you, madam speaker. i oppose this rule because it does not allow consideration for amendments to the fisa bill that would strengthen the underlying bill by providing for greater accountability to the republic of otherwise wholly secretive processes. operations of the government must be held accountable to the people. the problem with holding operations under the existing fisa law is that most of the activities under it are conducted in secrecy. the fact that i or other members of congress have access to classified information regarding those secret activities is not sufficient for public accountability. even if i were satisfied by my access to classified information that only reasonable and constitutionally justified actions are being take by officials in secret, i would still feel the need to give greater assurances to the public other than simply trust me, i'm satisfied, so so should you. curiously if i'm

understand the is. it really fun -- laid out -- he can win virginia, iowa, and number of states, ohio, for example, with those 18 and electoral votes. there are so many paths to victory. this guy basically has to run the table, as it were. he has to run the table, essentially, to beat mr. obama. whereas, if you are romney, how would you appeal to them? >> it is real tough for the republicans. there are a lot of seats. but the electoral map is very tough. we need both florida and ohio. a number of other states, as you say. i think mitt romney made a poor choice with paul ryan. there was the government is bad side, except when it comes to reproductive rights, where suddenly they know more than women and their doctors, but there are other issues. he is saying to forget about government, but i think he needs to take back this issue that government is just the enemy. we need some balance. i do not think he is going to do it, but i think he means, not just as basic, to move to the center, but move to that playset recognizes that a better balance between a free-market and democratic governme

in stafford, virginia, on our republican line. kevin, good morning. you're first up. what do you think about media coverage of campaign 2012? caller: oh, it's biased. it totally leans against the republicans. one example is every day in "the washington post," whenever there is a picture printed of barack obama or mitt romney, the picture of barack obama always has that beautiful barack obama smile on it. it's the best picture they could find of barack. and then right below it, there will be a picture of mitt romney with a sneer and he's very angry, like he's yelling at a crowd. but when, in fact, there's thousands of pictures available of mitt romney with a beautiful smile on his face and really looking positive and happy. they refuse to print those pictures. for people who don't read but just look at pictures -- there's a lot of people like that. that's one thing that the mainstream media in print, in newspapers, the "new york times," "washington post," they do it all the time. they used to find every glowing picture possible of hillary clinton that they could find. host: all right, kevin,
